You can put your own folder along side the My design folder, it becomes the folder list.  Folders don’t go inside My designs it files.  When saving or dragging and dropping on the computer you save the folder to the EMBF folder, the machine opens that when you click the USB icon, to show the folder list.  The piece below is copied from the 350e manual.

Opening the designs on USB memory
Press the USB memory tab.
The folder list is displayed in the window.
Press the desired Folder selection key to select it.

        CAUTION:
Do not turn the power off or disconnect the USB memory while the warning sign or hourglass is displayed.
 
       
            The designs contained in the selected folder will be displayed on the Pattern selection keys.
Press the Pattern selection key to select the desired.

The diagrams aren’t showing. Page 36 is the relevant page

There are two requirements for designs to show up on the 350E:
1. All designs MUST be inside a folder.
2. All folders from step 1 MUST be inside the My Design folder.

If you just put the designs into the My Design folder, but not inside a sub-folder, the machine will not see them.

The files have to be unzipped, the files go into the folder you don’t put a folder of files in the my design folder.

If they are unzipped they could be too big for the hoops

Update, I purchased the machine and got a little off of the price.  Of course now that I purchased it another one showed up on FB for a lot less.  Oh well.
I did try to use a usb , formatting it as the Janome website instructed  and after watching numerous u tube videos.  The My Design folder is there and when I have downloaded some .jef files into it when I put it back into the embroidery machine those files do not exist.
Any thoughts as to why they aren't there?

If you don't have UNwaxed dental floss, then use whatever cheap thread you have on hand, I keep some of the ultra-cheap white thread (3 spools for $1), that I would never use in the machine, solely for this purpose and prefer white thread so I can see how much dirt etc is being cleaned off.  You'll be quite surprised if it hasn't been done for a while. 

Pull off around a metre of thread, then another metre and do this several times, next give it a twist or two so the threads remain together (not that important but makes it easier).   Now dip it into Methylated Spirits...think it's called Denatured Alcohol in the US?...and allow the excess to drain away, you 'don't want this thread dripping wet' it only needs to be 'damp' so blot any excess with a scrap of fabric etc.  I hold one end near the spool area and follow the normal thread path right to the end, then floss back and forth...the results will tell you if this needs repeating, which is why I prefer to use white thread.  Also check for tiny shreds of coloured thread that have been trapped in the tension discs and were probably causing problems.  Sometimes I've had tiny coloured fibres on the flossing thread when the machine hasn't been giving any problems. 

I've been using this method since my first embroidery machine in 2001 and it's still part of my machine maintenance.    Hope this helps?  ;-)

Thank you so much Tracy!!  I will definitely try this.  I will have to go buy some unwaxed.

Walmart, many times, has some nice towels that can be used.  Also, the dollar store has microfiber dish towels, although they'd be better just as decor!

I find that there are some flash drives that do not work when I have purchased off brand flash drives. I do purchase from Amazon but I try to stay with name brand.

I fpound a load on Amazon, bought a pack of 10.  Wasn’t very expensive.  I have some upstairs with embroideries I want to do and I have some downstairs with the PC.  I also use some older USBs I found lurking at the back of the draw, 250 MB they work equally well.  I only use them as working USBs never store on them.  I stitch and delete and reload.  My backup USB is a 64GB and that is just one back up, I keep all my zipped original downloads on that.  My embroidery library and zips are also on an external drive.

Interesting that I’ve always only used 16 or 32g usb’s with nary a problem. I just don’t use them to nearly the capacity. Small g usb’s are hard to find.

Cynthia-
Get some UNWAXED dental floss and cut a piece about 15in long.  Thread it thru the machine as if it was sewing thread and hold the ends, one in each hand, as you floss back and forth.  It's awesome how clean it will get things.  Do it with the "lock" on so that the tension disks open (and foot goes down) to get the best result.  Also- if you dental floss package does *NOT* say it's unwaxed, it isn't so look for a different package/brand.  You may need to floss several times by flossing, pulling floss out at the bottom just above the needle eye, and then thread the dental floss thru again and repeat.

I do a lot of cotton tea towels and what I like best is a lightweight tearaway on the bottom and nothing on top!

Are you using woven tea towel fabric or terry cloth with loops/pile?

Jean and Vikki,

Thanks for sharing that you have set up folders and used larger USB drives with no problem.  I always just followed the advice my dealer gave me when I bought my 350e.

I have had a 350E since it came out! Have other machines, but love how little room it takes. No problem to take it anywhere if I wanted, nor to find room for it. I like to have it at standing level and it fits on a rather small open shelf - with enough room behind it so hoops don't hit the wall. I looked at the 500 a long time ago but didn't like all the space it took. I have a machine with larger hoops but I find I do mostly small things. Also, the simplicity of it is a big plus for me:-) Love the needle threader. As far as folders, I set up several folders inside the Embf5 top folder and find they don't need to be inside the My Designs folder. I use flash cards as at the time, they were so easy to find - they used to be used for cameras. I even have one that is FOUR MEGABYTES - unheard of today. It still holds lots of designs:-)
